Default Just noticed

Well I still didn't order the computer yet, but I am not in a rush, my computer right now is good and all, but I will order soon enough.
Anyways, I went to the store yesterday (CompUsa) and I got some guy to help me pick parts.
Basically we picked a $100 case, the same motherboard as the one I'm getting on Newegg, the same card, same processor etc. but the power supply I picked there was modular.
The final price came out to be $1100, as where on Newegg it only came out to $900
At CompUsa the Amd Phenom II 940 Black Edition (Stock) cost $240!
I was amazed!
It really is 20% more there, Newegg for me

CompUSA is basically the retail store version of Tiger Direct, so I can't see much of a change.
But I'll check it out and report back!

Well you can't compare them, they don't have many similar parts.
But the Tiger Direct price (Cheaper Components) came out to $874.92.
So if I was to use the same price it would come out more expensive so looks like Newegg is best, and has the largest quantity of parts.
